Baby Shower #3

My third shower was Monday, January 31 with Grace Church of DuPage ladies and hosted at the Fernandes in West Chicago. My mom was there for it as well - and this was the night the pre-snowstorm started and my mom had a small window to make it home tuesday morning before the BAD, EPIC snowstorm hit hard. Carley Freeman did my devotional and it was awesome - she's been such a sweet friend and huge encouragement to me through these last 2.5 years that we have done youth ministry together. So thankful for her, Matt and Ruby.

This shower was attended by a lot of Grace Church ladies - around 66? Wow! I was still opening gifts when people were leaving due to the snow that was falling fast :) So we loaded up the car in the snow and got home around 10:00 p.m. - eeks!
Got a couple BIG group gifts including a glider and jogging stroller, lots of cute little sleepers, blankets, books, toys, etc...
Very thankful for so much generosity!!
And also thankful I was then able to have the Wednesday and Thursday off after this shower bc of snow days - because here are photos of our baby room after these 3 days in a row of showers......OVERWHELMING!!!!!!!!


  1. wow! If I had known how set you were I wouldn't have bothered to get you anything:) haha just kidding. You are so close! Hope you are feeling good.

  2. What blessing!!! Good thing that little one should stay in your belly a few more weeks! You need that time to find his/her crib again!!!

  3. WOW!!! That is crazy! You got so much stuff. You better get organizing because Baby Jones is going to be here in about 2.5-weeks!!! :)

  4. awesome! hopefully you have everything you need :) it's so much fun finding a place for everything baby! :)
